Pburn, Pmirror, Pbackup, Pfind broken

September 10, 2011 — BarryK
These are all broken in the latest Wary 5.1.4. I'm annoyed about this. It is due to the upgrading of gtkdialog breaking scripts that use it. I reported about this to the gtkdialog development thread:

Zigbert has fixed Pburn (now 3.3.5), Pfilesearch (now 1.25), Pmirror (now 0.5) and Pbackup (now 3.1.9) and I have uploaded them to the 'common' repo.

But, I wonder what other scripts are out there that are now broken? My understanding was, from comments posted by thunor sometime ago, was that existing scripts would not be broken. if I had known that this was going to happen, I would have named it 'gtkdialog4'.

It is a bit too late to do that now, however, I am freezing the version of gtkdialog that is available in the 'common' repo. It is revision 224 from thunor's SVN site.

We will have to go through all the old PETs that we can find, any that are designed to use 'gtkdialog3', and thoroughly test them.

If you have Wary 5.1.4, you can install the fixed PETs:

I will be releasing an emergency bugfix version of Wary very soon.

EDIT Sept 1 2011:
A solution for the gtkdialog problem:


Pburn, ... These are all broken

How odd??? Usually, I use Brasero or Xfburn, but yesterday both of those failed to delete a DVD-RW, so I used Pburn from 5.1.4. Only used it a couple of times before. Impressive - it did the biz, twice. Are rumours of Pburn's demise greatly exaggerated?
